Question about Kenwood KDC-138 FM / AM Receiver
I bought a used jeep with a Kenwood model KDC-138 cd player already installed. I did install an amplifier and subs on my own. This did not prove to be a problem as I have done so many times before. The system worked well for about a month. After fueling my vehicle one evening I found that when I started the jeep the stereo was not working. The only thing the unit will display is "dcer" and nothing functions. What could the problem be?
Here's the quote from the manual regarding "dcer": "The speaker wire has a short-circuit or touches the chassis of the vehicle and then the protection function is activated. Wire or insulate the speaker cable properly and press the reset button. If the "PROTECT/DCER" code does not disappear, consult your nearest service center "
I believe the manual can be downloaded from crutchfield .com after you go to the Kenwood KDC-138 page on their website. The reset button is either on the lower left of the face or, removing the face, on the lower left of the body. Hope this helps you.
